  • Quarantine Procedures

    If Fully Vaccinated*

    If your daughter is fully vaccinated and is identified as a close contact of someone who tests positive for COVID-19, she does not need to quarantine as long as she remains asymptomatic and is committed to wearing her mask for 10 days following the exposure.

    If Unvaccinated

    If your daughter is not fully vaccinated and is identified as a close contact of someone who tests positive for COVID-19, she must quarantine as follows:
    • Quarantine may end after Day 5 of exposure without testing if no symptoms have been reported during the entire 5 days.
    • Quarantine cannot be discontinued earlier than after Day 5.
    The quarantine subject must continue to:
    • Monitor for signs and symptoms of illness
    • Wear a mask when around others following exposure
    • Observe social distancing

    * Have been boosted or completed the primary series of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccinations within the last 6 months, or the primary series of the J & J vaccination within the last 2 months.

Confirmed COVID-19 Illness

If your daughter tests positive for COVID-19, she must isolate for at least 5 days. After the prescribed isolation period, she may return to school if she is symptom free for a minimum of 24 hours without the aid of fever-reducing and pain-relieving medication and wears a mask for an additional 5 days.

Non-COVID-19 Illness

With Known Exposure to COVID-19:

To return to school after a non-COVID-19 illness, your daughter must have isolated for a minimum of 5 days and be symptom free for a minimum of 24 hours without the aid of a pain reliever or fever reducer or secure either a negative COVID-19 test administered by a health care professional or a doctor’s note clearing her to return to school.

Without Known Exposure to COVID-19:

To return to school after a non-COVID-19 illness, your daughter must be symptom free for a minimum of 24 hours without the aid of a pain reliever or fever reducer or secure either a negative COVID-19 test administered by a health care professional or a doctor’s note clearing her to return to school.
